Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router

1 Answer

When I try to install my DIR-655 with the software it came with, it says that I need to reset my username and password to factory default. (This is a new router!) I've held the reset button many times for durations up to a full minute, both while the power is on and off. I've also tried using 192.168.0.1 entered into my address bar to try to reset it there but it says the connection has timed out and won't load. I've brought the product back for an exchange, after hours on the phone with an Indian lady who was of no use, and this one does the exact same thing! Are there any suggestions how to get this to work?

Okay---- assuming you have a "Network Light ON" for this device and your ethernet connection shows on your computer..... Make sure LAN [ethernet} port does NOT have an assigned IP Address. It should be set to DHCP!!!!!

1.] Try address of 192.168.1.1

that fails... try 2.]

2.] If you are using Windows, get yourseld to a "Command Prompt"---- aka the old DOS Prompt.

a.] enter "arp -a" without the quote

This should show the IP Address[s] of ALL devices on your LAN. One should be the wireless router.

I lost my password


Take look at the following link. This will reset your 655 to the factory defaults (including the password).

NOTE: You will lose any settings you have made, and will have to redo them.

Lost dlink dir 655 password


Default user is Admin and default password is blank. (Don't type anything)

If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults. To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait about 30 seconds to access the router. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. When logging in, the username is admin and leave the password box empty.

Cant find wep key


Us a wired connection to access the routers setup menu and look under the security tab for the WEP key or just enter a new one, or try pressing the reset button for 20 seconds. That should restore it to factory defaults.

What are the steps to reset my password if i forgot it.


You should be able to reset the router to factory settings by hitting the small reset button on the back of the router. You may need to use a pen or some other sharp object to press it down enough for it to register. Hold the button until the lights on the router blink, and then try logging in with manufacturer default username and password.

My DIR-655 won't work!


It would be helpful if you could be a bit more specific regarding the way you hooked up the dir 655 to your network and your specifc DSL modem. If the modem you are using is the Actiontec M1000 DSL modem you will not be able to obtain internet access because the DIR 655 is trying to route an already routed IP, the M1000 has a built in router / DHCP that by default is enabled. You can use option 1, access the configuration settings of your M1000 and change the WAN configuration to act as a transparent bridge. After doing so and rebooting the modem you will have to enter your DSL login information like a PPPoE username and password for example into your DIR 655 network settings. With this configuration the modem simply acts as a bridge to relay data directly to the DIR 655 and the 655 itself provides login credentials to obtain internet from your DSL provider as well as hand out IP addresses to the local network. Option 2 is to continue to use the M1000 as a router by default and disable DHCP on your DIR 655 so that it essentially acts as nothing more than a switch or wireless access point while the M1000 hands out local IP addresses. I personally would recommend using the DIR 655 to route IP's as it's got far more configuration utilities than the M1000 does as a router, and really what's the point of getting the 655 if you're only going to use it as a switch or access point when there are other simpler and cheaper devices that could do that for you.

Dir 655 will not install


You should not need to enter any of that information.

The router will find the internet on it's own, once the ethernet cable is connected and the router is turned on.

Press the reset button at the back of the modem for 20-30 seconds, this resets the router to square 1. Power down, wait 30 seconds, then power back up. You should have internet connection to the router, which can be tested by connecting another ethernet cable from the router to the ethernet connector on your computer.

Reply back what your objective is in getting to the routers setup page.
